Geomorphological studies carricd out on the NE side of the Holy CrossMountains, from the Jeleniów Ridge to the northern boundary of the1 : 100 000 map of the Opatów region, have led to some new conclusionson the development of relief in the period before the Quaternary. In contrast to the southern part of the Holy Cross Mountains, the areapicked for research has been part of a land mass without interruptionfrom Upper Turonian times (Upper Cretaceous) to the present day andis particularly suitable for studies of land processes taking place in theTertiary.The conclusions reached are based on geological and geomorphologicalobservations. The greatest attention was paid to analyses of sedimenttype and the way of its accumulation.
